    Visions of Fire

    Every hour, open your eyes
    Please, at least every hour
    The euphoric presents, watch
    For I've seen, let your life flower

    The world is but an icy, blue ocean
    Peddle upwards so you may breathe
    For once you are under, you cannot see
    Take breaths from above the seethe

    The sky brings relief, relive your visions
    Sprint out, while still exists a feather of motivation
    Finally, let your eyes absorb it
    Scream its adrenaline sensation

    Curse the sky for not lowering itself
    "FUCK YOU, I was ALWAYS there."
    Switch the safety to semi-auto
    Shoot out their eyes as they stare

    Watch as you treasure your own visions
    The clouds will tremble down their own staircases
    Laugh, so gently, but don't forget it
    Watch them bleed tears, traveling down their faces

    Master your impulses, channel them
    Make every sweating effort to time them right
    Your eyes are your gift, your vision to light
    Treasure it, for I've lost it on a crashing flight

    I've never seen such beauty however
    That the oceans and skies have promised
    I closed my eyes so I could hear
    My desired visions of those who have solaced

    Every hour, open your eyes
    Please, at least every hour
    The euphoric presents, watch
    For I've seen, let your life flower
